WITH the Macedon Ranges Autumn Festival kicking off on March 26, police have said they will continue to be out in force to ensure drivers are doing the right thing on the roads.
The message comes off a busy couple of weeks for police.
More crime news:
On Saturday afternoon Macedon Ranges units from Kyneton and Gisborne responded to reports of cars driving erratically around Honour Avenue.
Police said within 10 minutes the vehicles involved were located and intercepted. Some driver education and a few penalty notices later for those involved, the driver was sent on their way back to Melbourne.
A Macedon Rangers highway patrol member said Honour Avenue was a particular hotspot for dangerous driving during the autumn months and the festival.
